Today's Driving School Litchfield MN Classroom Education

Litchfield, MN – 30 Hours of Classroom Education

How do we go about getting a driver’s license for our teenager?
Minnesota uses a Graduated Driver’s Licensing system (GDL). The GDL is designed to ease young drivers into the driving environment.


– Step one: Obtain the learner’s permit.
– Step two: Obtain the Provisional License.
– Step Three: Obtain the “under 21” driver’s license on their 18th birthday.
– Step Four: Obtain their regular class D license when they turn 21. This license then needs to be renewed every 4 years.


To take the written knowledge test for a learner’s permit, teens younger than 18 years of age are required to attend 30 hours of classroom education.

We offer driver’s education classes in Litchfield, and many other locations, throughout the year. Please visit our schedule page to find a location near you that fits into your busy schedule.

Classroom materials, such as movies, worksheets, quizzes and tests are used to present the skills and knowledge your teen needs to know in order to become a safe driver. Students are encouraged to participate while reviewing chapters in the Minnesota Driver’s Manual and engage in discussion related to driver’s education.

Litchfield, MN – 6 Hours of Behind the Wheel Instruction

Behind the wheel instruction with Today's Driving School in Litchfield, MN 56201

Back to the GDL system, step two for your teen is to get their Provisional License. Your teen will need to do two things before taking the road test. They must complete 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction with a licensed instructor and log 50 hours of supervised drive time with you or other qualified drivers. Behind the wheel instruction does not count as part of the 50 supervised hours of driving.

You may schedule your 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction anytime after your teen gets their permit. We strongly suggest that you drive with your teen for a minimum of 10 hours before their first session with us. We also suggest that you complete your last behind the wheel session no closer than a month prior to the road test. (Just in case weather or other unforeseen circumstances prevent your teen from completed their last drive on the scheduled date.

Home pick-up and drop-off is a great benefit offered by Today’s Driving School. If picking up and dropping off at your home doesn’t work, we are fine with other locations like school, work or a grandparent’s home. What-ever works best for you.

With each behind the wheel session, your teen drives for a full two hours. Our licensed instructor will follow a detailed lesson plan designed to introduce your teen to a variety of driving situations.

Your student will receive a driver evaluation sheet on their first drive. This allows you to see what skills have been practiced and receive feedback from our instructors via written notes and skill ratings. Don’t loose the sheet . . . we use the same sheet on all three drives.

How Do We Find Time For All Of This!
It can be difficult to find 10 days in a row for a teenager to attend class. To help out, our classroom education is structured to help you make up missed days easily.

Your teen must attend 30 hours of classroom education in order to receive their “blue card” or certificate of completion. If they miss a day of class, no problem! Missed days of classroom instruction can be made up at any of the other locations we teach. For example: If they miss day 6 they can attend day 6 anywhere we have classes.
